OK - not all your posts are a waste of e-ink!  Wink

In the world of religions, "forgery" has no meaning.

One man's "forgery" is another man's "revelation".

Sure it does.  The Epistle of Romans is signed by St. Paul, and pretty much every scholar agrees that St. Paul wrote it.  The Gospel of Thomas is signed by St. Thomas, and pretty much every scholar agrees that St. Thomas didn't write it.

You make us atheists look bad; smarten up.

I am deleting posts that are nothing more then personal insults.  Discuss in a rational manner or ignore the thread.

Well, just so you keep in mind that what appears to the untrained eye to be an "insult" might just be an "observation."  For example, if I call Bowhunter an asshole, that's not really an insult.  It's an accurate observation.  And I think he would agree.

You missed the point, as often.

If someone has some jewelry then it may be interesting to establish authenticity and you may even want to hire an expert to do so.

On the other hand, if someone is carrying some dogshit then proving that it is dogshit and not some ratshit molded to look like dogshit is not that interesting and the expert capable of telling the difference is just some poor shmuck that wasted years of his life on hollow pursuits.

I hope that metaphor is not too subtle for you, however, if it is I'd be happy to explain it to you in a more direct manner. One that you might not find very flattering.

Anyway, that's the reason why I find "forgery" to be of very little if any significance in the world of religions. Who cares if it's forged or not? It's bullshit either way!!!

You obviously care, you keep coming back.

No, I understood the point.  You were so eager to dunk on religion that you said something really stupid.
